SCO, Caldera, Unixware "Since they cannot show infringement of SCO Unix code, SCO now plans to challenge the 9-year-old settlement between AT&T and BSD. If it can successfully do that, then its claims that Linux contains tainted code can be substantiated. If it can't, SCO is dead meat." Says NewsForge. *Updated*

I think that they should have something like they have in the UK where if you sue and loose you pay all the legal costs.

Of course SCO is going for broke or bust, so they care nothing if they go bankrupt in the end.

Also you should not be able to sue an end user for copyright infringement before it has been established that the copyright is indeed in violation. It is just common sense. Most companies realise this but when you have a company like SCO which is just irresponsible. Also David Boies obviosuly does not have one principaled bone in his body. There is nothing preventing him saying no to this kind of irresponsible litigation.

Boies and SCO executives should never work in their industries again as far as I am concerned. Disgrace should be associated with all their names.
